Bernisches Historisches Museum

In its permanent exhibition, the Bernisches Historisches Museum shows highlights from the fields of history, prehistory, early history and ethnography. The objects on display range from the Stone Age to the present, from cultures of all continents.

The integrated Einstein Museum presents a powerful presentation of the life and work of Albert Einstein and places it in the context of world history. Animated films and experiments illustrate the pioneering theories of this genius.

The temporary exhibition hall's 1,200 square meters of space are used to present innovative, changing shows that deal with cultural, historical, prehistoric or ethnographic subjects on a revolving basis. 

The Burgundy Tapestries, the Königsfelder Diptych, the Graechwil Hydria, but also a range of ethnographic objects and old monies are all considered to be world-class objects.

The Bernisches Historisches Museum presents its collection through a diverse, multi-media approach.
